Teacher Shopping has concluded for the 2018/2019 school year. Shopping will resume in September 2019, with all eligible teachers receiving an email invitation in August.

Thank you for a great school year, and have a wonderful summer!

We want every child, in every school, to have the same advantage when walking into a classroom, and as a result, prosper and gain the confidence needed to succeed in life.

We collect new classroom supplies from all who wish to support student success.

The essential classroom supplies we provide to teachers and students are donated to our Resource Center through Corporate, Retail, and Individual partnerships. Interested in supporting student success through your own Classroom Supply Drive? See how you can help.

Our volunteers organize and support the distribution of classroom supplies.

Volunteers are critical in supporting our ability to serve students in need with supplies. We welcome volunteer groups both large and small, and offer a variety of activities to accommodate all abilities. Interested in volunteering with a group or as an individual? See how you can help.

Teachers from eligible schools can shop for FREE school supplies for their classroom.

Teachers from Minnesota schools in which 70% or greater of the student population participates in the Federal Lunch Program are invited to obtain school supplies, free of charge, for distribution in their classroom. Are you a teacher interested in learning about our opportunities? Contact us at kidsinneedmn@kinf.org.
